Cleveland History Scavenger Hunt planned for Saturday in downtown

Posted

Are you a downtown Cleveland history buff?

On Saturday, you can put your Cleveland knowledge to the test and participate in the Cleveland History Scavenger Hunt, which is sponsored by Terra Running Company.

The company is working alongside the Museum Center at 5ive Points with the goal of getting people out and moving, all while learning and enjoying the history that downtown Cleveland has to offer.

“My husband and I really like to run downtown and are fascinated by the history there and thought it would be a great event to give people a reason to be active and give them a way to learn or remember all the cool history that is in our backyard,” Terra Running Company co-owner Brittany Durkin said.

This free event will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, with teams meeting at the museum to check in and receive their first clue. There will be a total of six clues in this scavenger hunt event.

Teams can be made up of 2-4 people and must have at least one camera (cell phone cameras count) to take pictures of the locations. Durkin estimated that the little over two-mile course should only take about an hour and a half max to complete.

“People can walk, run or ride a bike, but at least one member of the team has to be on foot during the event,” Durkin added.

Dogs, children and strollers are more than welcome as this history scavenger hunt is entirely family friendly and can be handled by participants of all fitness levels.

The first team to finish the scavenger hunt will receive tickets to one of the museum’s History Happy Hours for May, July or September of this year. Other prizes will be given out as well, as all registered participants will receive two raffle tickets.

T-shirts will be available to purchase on Saturday for $20, with all of the proceeds being donated to the Museum Center at 5ive Points.
